IQ-07 Twice a week worship service ONCE A WEEK, our religious congregation holds a fellowship which I believe is the counterpart of your worship service. I learned from my officemate who is a member of your Church that you attend such gathering twice a week. Why does your Church hold two worship services weekly? Is it not going beyond what is taught in the Bible?

IQ-48 Proper attire in worship services

I HAVE ATTENDED Iglesia ni Cristo Bible seminars and worship services here in Dubai several times.   I noticed that you do not pray "The Lord's Prayer". . . . . . .  Also, does God prescribe a particular outfit for His worshipers?   What if one is not financially capable of buying a decent  dress, can't he be allowed to attend the worship service? Isn't prescribing a  specific attire for the worship service a form of prejudice?

IQ-103 Sabbath days are over

I AM A Catholic who has attended the worship services of different religious denominations.       I also read the Holy Scriptures.  
In the Bible, specially in Exodus 20:8-9, it is stated that the Sabbath should be remembered and kept holy. It is also stated in the verse that for six days a man should work and on the seventh day he should rest.
My question is this: Why is the Sabbath not observed anymore in our time, the Christian era?     Is the non-observance of the Sabbath in our time based on the Bible?

IQ-118 Children's worship service

MY NEIGHBORS ARE Church of Christ members.  Every Sunday, I observe that their little children are dressed in formal attire and attend to what they call Pagsamba ng Kabataan. Unlike children in my religion, these children attend such Sunday activity regularly and on time prescribed by your Church. Is this Pagsamba ng Kabataan really necessary?   I've heard from a friend who is also a member of your church that all your doctrines are anchored and based on the Bible.  What is your biblical basis for having this worship service for children?

IQ-126 Holy Supper literal or not?

ONE OF MY classmates in college told me that the bread and wine mentioned by Christ during the Holy Supper are not literal. He said Christ spoke spiritual words then and not literal. He used the verses John  6:53 and 63 to support his point. I am not very knowledgeable about the Bible, but I disagree with him.
I would like to ask you, is my classmate right in asserting that the bread and wine in the Holy Supper are indeed not literal?
